If you catch a cutting of something truely awesome and special you might have to pay $500.00 for it. It's really all going to dpeend on what you are tying to get. If you want something called "Bubba Kush" from a dispensary it's probably not Bubba Kush or Fire OG or whatever bullshit name they put on it.
Now if you can get in contact with a vendor somehow and get a cut directly from them at least you have SOME reason to believe the shit is real. The dispensary's are generally garbage for getting quality cuts.
